I am freezing. And when I say freezing, I mean that I seriously think at any point my fingers or toes may fall off due to frostbite. I don't even mind cold weather. I really don't. But this is absurd. It is FREEZING out. And, there has been massive amounts of snow on the ground for about a month and half now with NO signs of it ever melting. Enough is enough. I'm sick of winter...and it just begun.

So, I decided to think of the cold-weather positives...

Beautiful scenic snow...(ok, so the snow around me is actually slushy and gray, but it's a nice thought, right?)


The opportunity to USE a beautiful fireplace. (Even though Mr. Ruby and I don't have one...again, it's a nice thought)


The excuse to drink unimaginable amounts of HOT COCOA


Skiing!!! We're going on a ski trip in February - can't WAIT!


Ski Lodges - I love nothing more than hanging out at a good ole' ski lodge after a long day of cuttin' the slopes


HOT TUBS - This seriously makes me want to go buy one this instant...oh wait. Then that means I have to wear a bathing suit.

The snow here is also nastily gross & brownish gray. ICK! I need summer! I think I'd be more for cold weather if I was at a ski chalet, though, for sure!

Jordan said...

I totally agree with you! It's so cold here. And I'm not a huge fan of snow or cold weather, in fact I'm not a fan at all! LOL Try to stay warm =]

Yea, I really wish we had a fireplace too. Only a couple more months of this and spring will be here!
Your sking trip sounds like fun. I think I may be going on one in March. I've never done it before, but always wanted to.
I tagged you!

I wish I had a hot tub!

Ashley said...

I'm jealous of your ski trip! I haven't been since college and would love to cut up the slopes again!

Allison said...

Ugh, the snow here has just turned into ice...which is horrible!
I'd love to go in a hot tub...that's always so much fun in the winter :) (Plus there aren't a ton of people around, so I don't feel bad wearing a bathing suit!).

Stay warm!! )
